[bug resolved] Google Hangouts Share Screen Does Not Work
Not sure if this is my issue but sharing you screen via Google Hangouts does not work.
I have the same issue.
The window in Google Hangout that is supposed to pop-out, where you select screen to share, doesnt appear.
"Everything" else works …. like group chat etc ...
Same problem here. I had to switch to Opera to share my screen…
Any update on this issue? I am seeing the same issue…
Ubuntu 16.10, Vivaldi 1.4.589.38 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
The bug still exists in 1.7.735.46
Can anyone from Vivaldi chime in as to if this is on the roadmap to be fixed?
@bensarz I pinged a dev minutes ago.
But there is no timeline. Sorry for you.
The bug still exists in 1.8.770.56
please bump up this issue up. in version 1.9 the share screen is still not working.
all other functions from google suite are working great and Vivaldi is such a good experience, please fix this asap as this is an important work tool for many people.
I just noticed it as well. Please fix this issue.
I updated the bug tracker entry for 1.9 Stable.
Hi! It still hasn't been solved in 1.10.867.38, please make it work as soon as possible, this is quite an essential need in large companies in order to make Vivaldi a fully work-proof browser
Many thanks for the amazing browser!
Sorry for the trouble and thank you all for being so patient with us. I just pinged some devs to get more insights. Please let us know if you use any extensions and if the issue still happens when the extensions are disabled?
@gaelle Tried both with and without extension but the screen sharing does not work anyway. Nothing happens at all when selecting either share full screen or just a program/window in Google Hangouts. This is really a showstopper for using Vivaldi.
tried again on 1.12, on Windows 7 and Windows 10, and this is still not working. no extensions, no customizations.
quickly found posts of this bug on Mac and Linux forums too:
this "screen share" function is really important for companies that use Google Suite, or any gmail user anyway.
Just tried on both my iMac and MacBook. Doesn't work on either. No extensions installed.
ok, 1.13 is out, Screen Share is working!
tested on Windows 7.
thanks Vivaldi team! you are awesome!
@maurik Thanks for positive feedback to us (devs and testers).
